I say go for it. The person who walks you down the aisle should be someone close and meaningful to you, not just family for traditions sake. It also sounds like you have the blessing/approval of everyone who really matters- your Fiance and his wife. If your happy then that’s all that matters. Hope that helps..happy planning!

Definitely go for it!  I think you should have the person who means the most to you walk you down the aisle and it doesn’t matter if that’s a blood relation or not.  🙂

I don’t think anyone will judge you. The only reason people would think it’s strange is if your father is available, but he’s not. Go for what feels right!

Absolutely!  It sounds like your best friend is someone extremely important to you, and much closer than any other option.

I echo PPs, do what makes you happy (and with all the tears flowing, it seems everyone’s super happy). If you’re worried or conerned at all, just have a little note on the program or a mention about your family that could not travel to be with you. You can also list it in your program, like ‘Bride, escorted by John Smith, dear friend of the Bride’ or something of that nature.

Yay! Good for you! Of course he was honoured, that’s huge.

Don’t worry aout what others think, wedding traditions are changing all the time. I know that’s eaier to say than do but it really sounds like your head, heart & gut matched up on this one.

Maybe you could honour those other important guests in some other way? A reading, toast, speech…

Congrats & good luck!
